Wednesday Dinners & Sing-Off!!!

May 18, 2012

For the past few Wednesdays I have been heading over to the Maldonados’ apartment for dinner and Sing Off! I love hanging out, especially at people’s homes. Shelly and Mike are our school counselors and I actually teach their daughter. =) Adrienne is one of our coworkers and she is what brought us together~ to love on her and to watch Sing-Off!

Adrienne has a best friend who recently participated in The Sing-Off competition with a group called Pentatonix. And, not only did he compete, his group won!!! And for good reason~ they are an extremely talented group of individuals!!!

Kevin is the beat boxer and he was asked to join the group right before the competition. The three singers from Arlington, Texas found him on a youtube video… shut up! Youtube makes everyone famous! =)

He was studying in China when he realized that he could beatbox and play cello at the same time (correct me if I’m wrong, Adrienne). ^^ He was even on TV in China!

Anyway, Adrienne bought The Sing-Off season that he competed in and we have been watching it each week. I am more and more amazed by their group, Pentatonix, every time we see them perform.

Between the beatboxing and the base… this group is just unbelievable! Shelly and I have been so excited to watch Sing-Off each week with Adrienne (plus, we sorta LOVE Adrienne)! Even though we know who wins, we are having fun guessing who will be voted off  each episode.

Kevin and Pentatonix are quite popular now. I was telling my Korean coworker about Kevin and she showed her brother the video. To Katy’s surprise, her brother had already heard of Kevin here in Korea and seen the video! See, youtube really does make you famous!

Their recent video received a million hits within the first week:

One of my favorite songs they have done is Somebody I Used to Know by Gotye. That song has had a lot of covers, but I think their cover is one of the best I’ve heard.

I want to see Kevin beatbox and play cello with some singers like Rihanna (Shelly, that’s for you!). I think it would sound amazing with some raw voices~

I hope that you enjoy their music! And Adrienne, how do you have such cool friends? 😉 Pentatonix, if you ever read this, I hope that you are blessed to know that you have fans all over the world! Keep singing!
